Same-Day Ear Infection Appointments in Yonkers, NY

Ear aches can be very painful. There are several types of ear infections that can cause ear aches in children and adults. Ear infections can typically be treated by a family medicine doctor and do not typically require seeing a specialist like an ear, nose and throat doctor.

One type of ear infection occurs when fluid builds up in the middle ear without being infected and without causing fever, ear pain, or pus build-up in the middle ear. When the outer ear canal is infected, the condition is called swimmer’s ear, which is different from a middle ear infection.

For mild cases of middle ear infection, your general practitioner or family doctor might recommend watchful waiting or delayed antibiotic prescribing.

    About ear infection

    Back to the top

    An ear infection - also known as Otitis media - is an infection of the middle ear. The middle ear is an air-filled cavity that sits behind the eardrum and is responsible for transmitting sound from the outer ear to the inner ear.

    Ear infections are usually caused by bacteria or viruses and are more common in children than adults. The most common symptoms are ear pain and fever. You may also recognize an ear infection by drainage or fluid coming from the ear, balance problems, and hearing problems. A child suffering from an ear infection may pull at their ear or act fussier than usual.

    While ear infections will normally go away on their own, medical attention may be needed. You should see a doctor if symptoms persist for longer than 48 hours, the ear pain is severe, you or your child experiences a fever over 102.2 F, if the child experiencing symptoms is less than 6 months old, or if you notice any discharge coming from the ear. Children who suffer from recurring infections or persistent fluid in the middle ear should receive regular checkups to avoid any damage to their hearing or other complications.

    Treatment Options
    Doctors often recommend the following treatment options for an ear infection. Note that you should always defer to the treatment plan your doctor recommends.
